Kahun being scratched is laughable...dude was on fire the last few games despite only getting like 8 minutes of ice time and the best CF% of all the Pens...because, why? We have to ZAR and Bjug doing almost nothing? Kahun should be getting more ice t8me, not less...he must have been too friendly with the media or something...

Agree. No deserved to sit but Kahun should be in over Blueger, ZAR and McCann.

I still don’t like Johnson but has Marino made him look the least garbage of anyone he’s played with?

Captain Obvious says “When McDavid is out there, forwards should make it a priority to clear the defensive zone. “.

And I will never like Hornqvist with Geno. He’s too slow and doesn’t suit Malkins game. Need a banger who’s fast to get turnovers like Rust or Tanev.

I was thinking this too. Marino is maybe the perfect partner for him. He's quick and good with the puck, but can lose some physical battles. So, Johnson can just not move as much or try to move the puck as much and be there to provide the requisite "push back" when required. And since Marino is a rookie, Sullivan is interested in giving him sheltered minutes too, so it's not like when Johnson is paired with, say, Schultz and would be expected to play more with less favorable matchups.

Kahun clearly made the mistake of starting to heat up.

This game seems too quick for Simon. He’ll probably do something great now.

Smith looks to be pretty dialed in today. Gonna take a great play to beat him.

So if Murray pulls a Fleury and steps out in front of the crease, does he draw a penalty instead of getting scored on.

Blech...that's a frustrating goal to give up. Lose the faceoff after their center has been kicked out of the draw, and then letting Cave turn the corner too easily after a simple pass up the boards.

Yes in addition to stopping the shot from even happening.

But I’m not going to fault him there. That was a great finish and those goals happen.

I’ll settle for one good chance to start with and build on that. Still waiting to test this garbage in net.

Well, I thought that PP looked better than in the past couple weeks...moved the puck well and generated some good looks. And now right back on the PP...

And after a TV TO. The need to have a plan though to get someone open for a one timer but Letang just stops everything causing all lanes to be blocked.

We’ve had some pretty good chances, Smith is just seeing the puck really well today.

Murray has to save that goal, the guy was looking straight down the entire time, put out goalie stick and thats a no chance.

Mike Smith is the single greatest goalie in the history of hockey. He will never give up another goal as long as he lives. Just give him the shutout now! Mike Smith with the shutout. Shutout shutout shutout. Did I mention shutout? Smith with the shutout.

Ok, that’s gotta have some kind of effect, right?!

Doesn’t matter if it’s Arizona, Calgary, Edmonton , always seem to have 2-1 games with Mike Smith.
